The blinking LED mean that the display will not be shown to you and this problem belongs to short circuiting of transistor that are being connected with the mini transformers. The transformers boosts up the voltages for the LCD screen.
IF you are a technical person then handle the situation as i am going to describe. Otherwise, get it done by an expert in this field.

1. Open the back stand that holds the monitor by opening the 4 nos. of philip screws behind it as shown

2.After the stand is removed you will need to pry the back of the case off as illustrated in the pictures below. Use a small flat bladed screwdriver start at one of the release openings on the bottom as shown. Once you have a little gap in the case just pull the 2 halves apart and work your way around the screen.
After the screen unit is removed from the plastic case we can get down to the repair. We need to remove the power supply unit. You will need to unplug the 4 back-light connections (connectors with pink and white leads, circled in red) and the control panel cable the flat signal cable. Then remove the 2 screws from each end, then undo the 2 small nuts holding thpower light blinking. no other response - 8cb60d4.jpgctor to the case (circled in yellow).
Before you fully remove the shield and board assembly be sure to unplug the LCD signal cable that is under the boards as seen in the picture to the right. Now turn the assembly over and remove the 5 screws and the 2 plastic standoff clips as marked by the yellow circles below. Now with the board removed you will need to replaced the components that are circled. The parts are as follows:
3 Amp Fuse (yellow)
Q759, Q760, Q734 & Q740 - C5707 transistors (red)
Q743 & Q751 - MOSFET Transistors (blue)
The location nupower light blinking. no other response - ce75923.jpgr a E173FPb but the E172FPb boards have thepower light blinking. no other response - 94440e2.jpg in the same locations.



I hope it is an understandable thing to do. Get it done yourself or an expert and get back your view...

good luck

    If the VGA cable is problematic then the permanent orange LED will glow.

TV picture went out. stand by/timer light blinks when I turn on the TV. no other response from TV.

The timer light blinks representing the fault on the tv. If the tv blinks in an orderly fashion then the number of blinks before pausing is used to indicate the fault. This can only be determined by looking at the service manual for that set. If the blinking is continuous without pauses after a number of blinks, then it indicates there is a problem and the first place to look would be in the power supply. Either the power supply isnt supplying power to the Line output transformer i.e an open circuit or short circuit..OR the line output circuit has a short. Without a diagram i cannot guide you which components to check..but..swollen topped capacitors in the power supply are a give away :)

Dishwasher not responsive, just a blinking CLEAN light.

HI, this is a control fault that is located in the logic sector of the circuit board. You will need to replace the control in order to restore proper function.
